Publishing Reprisal

2013-Sep-2 -> from the crowdfunding department Tags: writing publishing crowdfunding 

I need your help. All of you. If you're reading this post, if you've stumbled across it, or have clicked through a share, I really really need your help. This post marks the beginning of my crowdfunding endeavor to raise the money I need in order to launch my third book, Reprisal.

Yeah, I'm looking for money. But I'm also looking for shares, tweets, or anything else you can help me out with. And hey, if you happen to have $10 to spare and feel like being generous, I'll be happy to take that too.

But this isn't just any crowdfunding campaign. It's a contest.

In the world of Galadir, there are eight elements: fire, water, earth, air, life, death, time and shadow. I've set up perks in this campaign to correspond to each element, and the element with the most takers at the end of the campaign will win something cool. I'm going to have my lovely wife design an exclusive book mark just for the winning element, and ship one to each and every funder who chose that element. This is a one-time deal. This bookmark will never ever be made available again.

That's not enough to entice you?

Indiegogo has sharing tools that let me track referrals for each person who shares it. You simply need to have an account on their site and use the referral link provided on the campaign page. If I hit my funding goal, I will give the single person with the most referrals at the end of the campaign a $250 Amazon Gift card. How's that for incentive?

Here's the Details

I'm looking for $5,000. This will be used to pay for editing, publishing, printing costs, advertising of the completed trilogy, hard cover production, and anything else related to the launch of the third and final book in the trilogy.

Go here to see the campaign!

I'll be sending out regular updates on this, and keeping y'all informed on which team is winning.

The Perks

What would a crowdfunding campaign be without perks? If you're not sure what a perk is, it's an incentive I use to get you to give me your hard-earned money. I'm not just going to take it and give you nothing.

Here's a list of things I'm offering at the start of the campaign:

  • Exclusive wallpapers.

  • eBooks of all three books.

  • Autographed paperbacks of all three books.

  • Poster-sized maps of Galadir.

  • An exclusive Time Weaver Chronicles T-Shirt that you will only get through this campaign.

  • Hard covers of all three books!

As the campaign goes on, depending on how well things go, I may put more stuff up for grabs as well, but you have to admit, that's a pretty good line-up, right?

So come one, come all, and help me realize my dreams. I'll be eternally grateful for any and all donations, no matter how small.

Thanks for reading!

I'm always interested in hearing what you have to say. Contact Me, I'd love to hear from you.
